Lark Silver Lake Cake Shop
3337 W Sunset Blvd
Los Angeles, CA 90026
verdict: it's aight
this cute shop is in my hood so i went to lark yesterday and dropped $10 to take home a variety of cupcakes for my sis and i to taste. again, everybody's taste buds will differ but here's my impression of what i tried:
red velvet cupcake- DELICIOUS. i thought the frosting was a bit much (it is quite the yummy glob), but i didn't bare to scrape any off. it was totally consumed with a smile.
caramel cupcake- the frosting is TOO SWEET. no thanks.
chocolate mousse cupcake- also too sweet. reminded me of a ding dong with the white cream center.
pecan bar- too sweet. good if taken in small doses.
overall, i think this is a good cupcake shop but it requires you to have a super high tolerance for sugar. i would go back for the red velvet and maybe to try their other cupcakes...but if i lie there frothing at the mouth from a diabetic shock, please contact blue cross. i'd appreciate that.
